Humpback Dolphins - The Sound of Hope....
Don't miss the live premiere TONIGHT of the short film produced by Homebrew Films on the endangered Humpback Dolphins!
Last February the SeaSearch team joined us in Ponta to collect data on our famous humpback dolphin Herme after Angie had shared a video clip of him whistling with a bubble train! Needless to say he did not disappoint and showed up more than once while PhD candidate Sasha Dines and her supervisor Dr Tess Gridley were here.
The Sound of Hope is an accumulation of Sasha's work in acoustic monitoring of this engaged species and includes video of her work here in Mozambique with us. The video here, filmed by Angie Gullan in the Ponta do Ouro Partial Marine Reserve shows Herme in the company of the local bottlenose Dolphins of Ponta! Towards the end you can clearly hear him whistling and see him getting a bit of pec petting!
To learn more about her interesting work and to understand a little more about the sounds of humpback dolphins, be sure to tune in. The screening will be followed by a Q and A lead by the SeaSearch Team.
